the government will treat them as badly as the united states treats them or worse. there are still a few prisoners in guantanamo, the weakest from china, the chinese government. there are some in guantanamo cleared for release. and still held. i don't actually understand why they are still held. they were under the dictator ben all the who has been disposed. one issue needs to be looked at this why specific people are held, and one that many of us have been campaigning on for many years is the last british resident in guantanamo and the united states government has clearly said they want to release him. he is on a list of 65 who need to be released in september but the first time the united states government said the names and identities of 65 of these agencies. we have it printed, the united states government -- we have from the british government the statements over the years they want to be reunited for four british children and those of us who have been studying this thing is is because he knows too much. use a very eloquent man and fight for the rights of prisoners and knows the sto
tunes. fareed zakaria "gps" is next. >>> this is "gps global public square." welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria coming to you today from london. happy new year. on today's show, we'll look ahead at what 2013 might bring around the world. i have a great panel richard haass, anne-marie slaughter and ian bremer who i will ask to gaze into their crystal balls. will assad fall, will israel bomb iran, and will the euro zone finally break apart? >>> then the fiscal cliff. the view from across the pond. how did our political process look from a perch overseas and what will it all mean for the u.s. economy and the global economy? >>> also, will this be india's awakening? the nation confronts its own dark corners after a despicable deadly act. i'll look at some parallels with america's recent tragic school shooting. >>> first, here's my take. the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff is a small victory for sanity, but what it says about the future is somewhat bleak. washington will probably lurch from crisis to crisis kicking problems forward and placing band aids
and the forthcoming debt ceiling, the united states faces a much deeper challenge. for more than a decade now, for many decades by some measures, america's growth rates have slowed. recoveries have been jobless. and median wages have declined. some combination of the information revolution and globalization has placed tough pressures on high-wage countries like the united states. these new forces of technology and globalization are accelerating and without a strategy to revive growth, long-term growth, all our problems get worse, including and especially our debt. washington's focus so far has been on raising taxes and cutting spending. it should really be on reforming and investing in the american economy. historically when the american government or the world bank or the imf advised countries that got into trouble, they usually stress that achieving fiscal stability, austerity was only a part of the solution. the key to reviving growth is structural reform to make the economy more competitive, as well as crucial investments in human and physical capital to ensure the next generation of grow
. if you listen to african american women talk about churches in the united states, you'll hear concerns. you will hear concerns from sisters in islam, a really wonderful group in malaysia talking how to reinterpret the koran so women's integrity is more full-fledged. so it's not really an answer to your question, but it does mean we have a much bigger agenda that if we take religion seriously is to watch a women engage with religion, both state and has organized process and what kind of gender analysis, what the gender analysis show you about the part is of a particular religion in particular places. i know from a serbian feminist friends that there is an enormous alarm now in the reassertion of the serbian orthodox christian church in serbian political life. there is also a lot of of armed amongst russian feminists about the closeness of the putin government to the russian orthodox church now. so you have to watch over time. you have to listen seriously to feminists in any country before you make a function. you have to be curious about how women live their religious lives or nonreligi

you around the world in 60 minutes. we begin with nuclear threats against the united states. north korea announced plans to test more nuclekes and more lon range rocket launches. north korea's defense commission calls america the sworn enemy of the korean people. i want to get straight to new york. >> the words are very threatening. it is very incredible to hear them directly threaten united states in that way just ahead of what they say will be another nuclear test. what i'm hearing and what analysts are saying is that is probably how one would have expected them to react. it comes just a day after yet more u.s. action and u.n. action at the security council and more sanction action. most people believe this is not a threat of attacking the united states but certainly the words are threatening to the united states. they say analysts that this is north korea's way of trying to deter any further action from the international community. and that they have no capacity to invade in terms of long range missiles to reach the u.s. it is a serious issue if they do test any kind of nuclear

responds likewise. delegates at the united nations have agreed to expand sanctions on north korea. the security council condemned a rocket launch there last month. chinese delegates have long provided diplomatic protection for their north korean allies. but they approved the resolution and members adopted it unanimously. the statement criticizes the launch as a violation of previous resolutions. the security council will add organizations and individuals to lists of existing sanctions and freeze their assets. the north korean space agency is among those named. >> today's resolution also makes clear that if north korea chooses again to defy the international community such as by conducting another launch or a nuclear test then the council will take significant action. >> american delegates told the chinese the resolution would not bring in new measures but would build existing sanctions. those assurances convinced the chinese to approve the resolution. >> and we believe that there's opportunity for all stakeholders of the peninsula, korean peninsula, to start a diplomatic track an

and break up the united states, thereby initiating the costliest war in the country's history. abraham lincoln noted in the his first inaugural address that, quote: one section of our country believes slavery is right and ought to be extended while the other believes it is wrong b and ought to be extended -- sorry, and ought not to be extended, and this is the only substantial dispute, period. closed quote. the president of the confederate states of america, jefferson davis, reminded his congress in 1861 these are his words: the labor of african slaves was and is indispensable to our prosperity so that with interests of such overwhelming magnitude imperilled by the election to the presidency of an anti-slavery man by abraham lincoln, he meant, the people of the southern states were driven to the adoption of some course of action to avert the danger with which they were openly menaced. and that course of action, of course, was leaving the federal union. davis was not overstating the stakes for him if his fellow -- for him and his fellow slave owners, the more than 12 million souls who r
and it comes amid a bitter debate over gun control in the united states. just yesterday in his inaugural address, the president appeared to link the debate to the founding principles and the constitution. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges. that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. >> "outfront" tonight, hogan gidley, republican strategist. michael waldman, former speech writer for president clinton and michael avlon. obviously that was a reference, a rather oblique one, to the gun control debate, but a reference it appeared to be. the fourth school shooting, though, in more than a month. nearly half the american people disapprove of what the president is doing on gun control. is it time now for less talk and more action from the president on gun control? >> well, you're right, that in that powerful speech yesterday, he used the words and the sentiments of the founders to argue for his agenda and one of the elements obliquely, though not exp
and this fight has moved from northern and west africa to great britain and the united states. the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee called this a growing radical movement and supports the offensive and he is outfront tonight. thank you for taking the time. i appreciate it. the islamist military commander who we spoke to said they demand an end to the war to release the hostages. we are hearing this attack has been in the works before the french formalal involvement. should the united states be negotiating with these al qaeda linked groups? >> here is the difficulty and you have done great reporting on this. for the last six years this particular al qaeda affiliate has been taking westerners hostages and have been using this for bargaining power. they then use the monetary ransom in order to build their organization. they are also freshly supplied from some of the weapons that they picked up in libya. so we have a situation, frankly, where i think we have to hope that the french foreign legion forces and other forces engage and make very quick progress. i say that because once
. there are rumors and divisions within the government, and now diosdado cabello says they're more united than ever and committed to continuing hugo chavez's revolution. >> no one knows what's happened to the man himself. we don't know what kind of cancer he has, how he is, we don't know whether he'll be able to take the oath of office next week. what is the government going to do next week if he can't? have they given any indication how they plan to handle the situation? >> that's a very big question that everybody here is asking themselves. nobody knows and the opposition has been very demanding about that. they want to know what type of cancer chavez has, where he's been operated and exactly what's going on and nobody is quite sure. the other thing that will also happen as you see all of these people are supporters of hugo chavez and want to express their belief chefs -- chavez will survive. the government -- also in the region, for example -- the senate to allow them to travel. >> thank you very much for persevering there, theresa, with vocal chavez supporters there in caracas. police in pakist
are united states subsidiaries of southern companies. now letie me give you an example of a u.s. subsidiary of a foreign company. we are sitting in one. until nine years ago this company we work at, fox news, was a subsidiary of a foreign company. we are very much an american company. jay this corporation is a u.s. -- >> this corporation is a u.s. company. >> they don't get money from the federal government. h that's the point. that's the point. if you are getting subsidees from the u.s. government shouldn't you be a u.s.-based company? >> what this example says is the folly of president obama's argument that a stimulus would create a job in a particular location, ie, the united states. capitalists are fungible. what it says is the government should not be in the business ofai picking winners and losers. that should be based on economics and where people say they will get the highest rate of return. this is something the obama administration doesn't care about because he wants his own agenda which has nothing to do with realis economics. >> i don't know why we have to go to t mark. i'm sure
, congressional republicans have held the full faith and credit of the united states of america hostage for political points and debates. instead of doing what congress has always done under both parties, allowing the government to pay the bills it has accrued. they decided to play a game of chicken with the global economy. reporter: paul ryan, we are told, is working on a budget plan that would balance within 10 years. it is expected that patty murray's idea of the budget will be quite different. but the bottom line is a lot of people who say we need the budget with this debt of $16 trillion are going, will be glad to get to the table and work on an actual budget speech you we will see how it turns out. mike emanuel, thank you very much be one a fox news weather alert. extreme winter weather is gripping parts of the south. arctic air and freezing rain expected from arkansas to the north carolina and south carolina area. dangerous driving conditions. up to a quarter inch of ice can accumulate. people in the upper midwest and northeast are wondering when the cold will end. another day of

this in a one-three month time when. why should we do that? where the united states of america. we cannot manage our affairs in such a way that we pay our bills and provide certainty in terms of how we pay our bills? look. i do not think anyone would consider my position on reasonable. major, i am happy to have a conversation about how we reduce our deficits. i'm not going to have a monthly or every three months conversation about whether or not we pay our bills. that in and of itself does severe damage. even the threat of default hurts our economy. it hurts our economy as we speak. if we want to have a conversation about how to reduce our deficit, let's do it. we have been having that for the last two years. we just had an entire campaign about it. the american people agreed with me that we should reduce our deficits in a balanced way that takes into account the need to grow this economy and put people back to work. despite that conversation and despite the election results, the position that has been taken on the part of house republicans is that we have to do it our way. if we don't, we simpl
. >> that's a fair point. the clock is ticking. the united states says it is going to withdraw in 2014. it is not just delay on troop numbers that had us asking questions today. today, the question gave a reason for the delay. he said, i haven't got recommendations from the top commander in afghanistan. here is what the president said. >> i am going to be over the coming weeks getting recommendations from general allen and other commanders on the ground. >> a month ago when i spoke with secretary panetta in afghanistan, he agreed general a allen was responsible. he said the options were already ready at that time a month ago. here is secretary panetta. >>> general allen having developed the campaign plan for afghanistan is the one who has could tom forward wi to come forward with the recommendations of what they will look like. he has prepared several options. >> "the new york times" and cnn have reported that those options were present td. allen presented three levels, the pentagon offered three alternatives and the white house deputy adviser commented on the number saying the number
. he was convinced that it would be taken from the united states that the united states entered the war. entered world war ii on behalf of the british. nothing is more important than making sure that there was no war. keeping britain out of the water and then the united states out of the war. and he did everything that he possibly could. he violated protocol, he did not file orders. he met secretly with german diplomats and he was convinced that as a businessman, he knew how to negotiate a deal. and that if he were put in a room with hitler, the two of them could negotiate and he refused to see that hitler was a madman. but he didn't care about the german people. but he had other fears that drove him. he told the leader of the zionist community, i'm going to go meet with them and work it out. he became so anti-churchill, antiwar effort, that the british spying on him, which i found in the national archives in britain. there are records of his conversation with german diplomats. he wanted to negotiate an end to the war. to negotiate a settlement that would prevent war and that would resc
's ambassador to the united nations has hinted at the need for action if the north conducts a third nuclear test. he says the threat is real. ambassador kim sook says the north is preparing to carry out another test after many years of development. he suggested that the countries concerned have the resources to respond. >> we have many items in our hands, well not only the republic of korea, but japan, the united states and some items to be included once they cross the line. >> kim says north korea will use its program to arm itself with weapons of mass destruction. he calls the country's nuclear weapons an imminent threat. ambassador kim also says south korea will try to strengthen cooperation with japan. the south assumes the u.n. security council presidency in february. >>> the pakistani teenage girl shot by islamic militants will undergo another operation, this time to restore her hearing in one ear. malala yousafzai was targeted for working to promote the rights of girls to receive an education. the 15-year-old was shot in the head by the pakistani taliban as she left school. the attack lef
, as is israel's habit or policy never to comment. of course, the intelligence from lebanon, from the united states suggest there was an israeli airstrike. most of the perceived wisdom is that it was on an arms convoy, perhaps that was leaving syria bound for lebanon, perhaps of antiaircraft missiles that would have gone into has by law's -- into hezbollah's hands. align that this was a military recess facility that was hit -- the line that this was a military research facility that was hit is only coming from the syrian government. this is a calculated risk for israel. israel has said previously it would not intervene in syria's crisis unless it felt there was a danger that the chemical and conventional weapons might be falling into the wrong hands. therefore, israel feels that, in those circumstances, it could intervene. >> israel taking a calculated risk. what do you make of this -- i'm not sure if you have seen this. the iranian deputy foreign minister said about this strike there will be serious consequences. those were his words. >> that highlights the problem for israel. there are ple
to the united kingdom and its people will be taken within the and and did kingdom and its people. >> there will have to be talks anyway, so why should britain not renegotiate its fleet with europe? >> first of all, we have an agreement that is ratified by all member countries under a referendum. it was a compromise by the different member states. more opting out means a real cherry picking. there has to be reform. it has to become better, to become more competitive, to be sure that another crisis does not question the accountability on the european level. we have seen the fiscal compact, and i think we have to not renegotiate, but make europe better. >> what many people in britain says that we did not understand is that david cameron once a flexible, adaptable, open europe. what is wrong with that? >> this is a community of wall. we have common agreements. you can become a norwegian status, with a flexible solution, but if you stick to the internal market, it is an equal playing field with the same rules. otherwise everyone does what he wants. >> all right, dr. fox, there it is.
. [laughter] this and the sea in 1964 was here for the first tour of the united states for the royals she found herself sitting next to paul mccartney. of course, she did. [laughter] the most remarkable thing is she was not just a witness to history she lived in extraordinary life and those are taking place over the sentry born in england the little girls were expected to grow up to be a wife and mother but nothing else. but things change and she changed. i hope the book will contribute to younger women's understandings of what their mothers and grandmothers went through and not to take for granted all that they have. she earned all the time to have a life of her own. that was about having her own unique identity not just as someone's mother or wife for as much as she enjoyed being a mother or also mrs. richard helms. she was more than that. that was important said every human being once their own identity. we will begin with their service in world war ii. growing up on the southeast coast of england and for the millennium that part had been invaded by vikings. the people of that area wer
this morning. today on the calendar, we have mcdonald's, united technologies, motorola solutions, coach, and wellpoint. just a few of the names we'll be watching. >>> then after the bell this afternoon, you've got apple coming out. still the world's most valuable public company. the stock fell below $500 last week for the first time in 11 months. shares have fallen nearly 30% since peaking at $705.07 on september 21. that, by the way, the day of the iphone's release. joe? >> okay. thanks. i was saying -- january 23. you know this is the last day it will be january 23 until a year, until next year. you know how we've been saying that about these things, palindromes, we won't see another in -- 2002 for 90 years. at least 12 months before it is january 23. let's head to the economic forum. world economic forum. andrew messaged me with that fact. he is standing by in davos. and andrew, we don't know who you have for guests today. we're more interested in obviously the fashion forward looks you're going to be bringing us. hopefully you're going to have -- >> yeah -- >> every hour. you'll be,
to women, many in army and marine infantry units. commanders will have to decide whether women will be eligible for elite forces, such as the navy seals and the army's delta force. >> let me be clear-- we're not talking about reducing the qualifications for the job-- if they can meet the qualifications for the job then they should have right to serve, regardless of creed or color or gender or sexual orientation. >> brown: the move drew wide praise from women's groups and others. but one former member of delta force, now with the conservative family research council called the move another social experiment. jerry boykin, said in a statement that commanders will now have the distraction of having to provide some separation of the genders during fast moving and deadly situations. is it worth placing this burden on small unit leaders? i think not. panetta's announcement followed a house hearing yesterday on sexual misconduct in the military. a recent study found that in 2012 alone there were some 800 reported incidents. but general dempsey said ending the ban on women in combat w
. of course, the time -- the clock is ticking, the united states says it's going to withdraw in 2014. it's knot just the delay on troop numbers that had us asking questions today. today the president gave a reason for the delay. said, look, i haven't given recommendations yet for general john allen. here's what the president said. >> i'm going to be over the coming weeks getting recommendations from general allen and other commanders on the ground. >> all right a month ago when i spoke with secretary panetta, he agreed general allen was the one responsible but said the options were already ready at that time a month ago. >> general allen having developed a campaign plan is the one who really has to come forward with the recommendation what the enduring presence will look like. >> prepared several options, those options were indeed presented. three levels of troop levels, the pentagon offered three alternatives and ben rhodes this week actually commented on the number saying the number could possibly be zero. what more recommendations is the president waiting for? >> you'll notice on the
of the world's leading gun policy experts formulating research, policies to reduce gun violence in the united states. tell me this. how does the united states compare to other countries? take the most industrialized countries in the world. is it as shocking as many would have us believe? >> yes, it is. if you compare united states homicide rates with other high-income countries in terms of their average homicide rates, ours is approximately six times higher than other countries of similar wealth. if you look at our firearm homicide rates, our rates are 22 times higher than other countries. >> dr. fox, you're an expert of school and mass shootings. and i suppose the obvious question for people like me that reacted with such horror to sandy hook and demand these assault weapons be removed from circulation is this -- would it actually make any difference? are they choosing these weapons because they're easy to get hold of? will they just go and find some other weapon that can do the same job for them? >> well, incidents like sandy hook certainly motivate us to do some reasonable, sensible things
that such worries were anachronistic. the passion of human beings in society such as the united states had believed to be domesticated. the no longer pretend to be tyrannical or otherwise undermine the order. hence wilson thought the state emancipated from the founders static constitution should be coming and i quote him, had instrumentalities for quickening in every suitable way. of collective and individual development. well, who was to determine what these might be suitable? the answer might be the government itself. wilson was as progressives tended to be a historic assist. that is someone with a strong sense of history he thought had its own unfolding logic, its autonomous trajectory, its proper destination. was the duty of leaders to discern the destination towards progressing and to make government the unfettered of the process, progressives tend to exalt the role of farsighted leaders and the role of the american president. this too put them at odds with the founders. the words leader and leaders of here just 13 times in all of the federalist papers. once as a reference to those that led th
inviting the lord into the consequences of the united kingdom to leave the european union? >> i always, i always listen closely to what he says, and i'm a huge fan of his plans for an induction strategy. on issue of europe haven't always agreed. he was a leading proponent of britain joining the single currency and i've always been opposed to the. on issue of the referendum i gently remind my right honorable friend he was in that referendum was very much part of his manifesto of the last election. [shouting] >> in the interest of harmony i think we'll leave that to one side. >> mr. speaker, a constituent of mine with a chronic medical condition tells me that he is just 20 pounds a week to spend on food and clothing after paying his utility bills, and after april after the welfare cuts in april, he will just have to pounds a day. if the prime minister police we're all in it together, with the agreed to review the impact on the very poorest of the welfare cuts so that my constituents sacrifices are in line with his own? >> i will look very close to what the honorable gentleman says
these issues. i know that the united kingdom is sometimes seen as an argumentative and rather strong-minded member of the family of european nations. and it is true that our geography has shaped our psychology. we have the character of an island nation. we are independent, forthright, passionate in defense of our sovereignty. we can no more change this british sensibility than we can train the english channel. and because of this sensibility, we come to the european union with a frame of mind that is more practical than emotional. for us, the european union is the means to an end. prosperity, stability, the anchor of freedom and democracy both within europe and beyond her shores, not an end in itself. we insistently ask how, why, to what end? but this doesn't make us somehow un-european. the fact is that ours is not just an island story. it is also a continental story. for all our connections with the rest of the world, for which we are mightily proud, we have always been a european power and we always will be. from caesar's legion to the napoleonic wars, from the reformation, the en
roosevelt and hopkins left together. the idea that united states supply the country fighting germany with more material that they needed and they wouldn't have to pay until after the war was over. on the last day in 1940, london was burning and the citizens have endured four months of almost nightly rates under the city of london. thousands of civilians have been killed. on december 29, 1940, the largest single attack took place when hundreds were radioed the st. paul cathedral. they trapped millions around the cathedral and the city. on new year's eve churchill drafted the cable to roosevelt he said dear mr. president, i do not know what is in your mind. and i do not know what your plans to do, but we are fighting for our lives. ten days later, january 10, 1941, hopkins was in the basement of number 10 downing street, churchill's residence, the prime minister's residence, having lunch alone with winston churchill. he was an extraordinary man. he played and was declared a decisive part in the whole movement of the war. he said that his was the sole of the shoe of the crumbling white
